Cadillac Fire Department looking for more on call firefighters


    The Cadillac Fire Department is looking to hire more paid on call firefighters.

    WEXFORD COUNTY, Mich., (WPBN/WGTU) -- A northern Michigan fire department is looking to add to its on call ranks.

    The Cadillac Fire Department wants to add more people to help out in emergencies.

    Pay starts at $12.50 an hour but the department said that can increase over time as a person gets more training and certifications.

    The fire marshal said the department will pay for any of the training that's needed.

    "Everybody would love to have a massive fire department ready to go at a moments notice, however there are fiscal constraints to that and that's why that boots on the ground that people are looking to help within their community," said City of Cadillac Fire Marshal Anthony Wolff. "There's such a dependence on those folks."
